By Benjamin Flowers: The Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CCOF) is predicting a late start to this year’s rainy season as well as short-term and long-term droughts developing in Belize.

The CCOF’s latest newsletter, released on Friday, predicted that the ongoing weather pattern during the period May to July could delay the onset of the rain season.

However, when the wet season does start, extreme wet spells are not expected. The Barbados-based agency also said that moderate or worse short term droughts are expected in southeast Belize, along with northeast Guadeloupe, Martinique, and St Vincent, while moderate longer-term drought has developed in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao (the ABC islands), Antigua, the northernmost and southeastern Bahamas, Barbados, western Cuba, Dominica, eastern Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, southwest Haiti, eastern Jamaica, Martinique, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and the United States Virgin Islands (USVI).

Belize is also one of the countries cited for having long-term droughts, along with the ABC Islands, Barbados, western Cuba, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Kitts, St Lucia, Saint Martin, and the USVI, and might possibly develop or continue in the northern Bahamas, parts of eastern Belize, St Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago, and northern Suriname.

The CCOF also predicts that the probability of wildfires will peak sometime this month.
